    Is this a common problem, because I had a friend buy one today and exhcnaged it cause he said his had noticable keyboard flex.

    I didnt know MBPs now have keyboard flex!

    I believe it. You can press down around the palm rests on the Retina MacBook Pro and it flexes. In bad cases it will also make a creaking sound.

    I believe that sound would be related to the bottom plate not being seated properly.

    Well he said if he pressed really hard on the keyboard with his fingers or a hammer, it would get worse.
